Unfortunately, recruitment fraud is a well-known way that third parties try to get personal information. You can read a little bit about how to protect yourself by reviewing the FBI’s warning. Please note: Splunk will never ask for a fee of any kind to apply. There are no application fees, recruiter placement fees, interview reservation fees, training fees, resume formatting/re-writing fees, etc.

You can read about what a legitimate Splunk application and hiring process looks like above. Please be wary of anything that deviates from that experience, such as:

  • Someone using an email alias (other than xxx@splunk.com) to contact you for personal information including your address, date of birth, passport information, social security number (or other government identification), and/or banking details.
  • Someone using an email alias (other than xxx@splunk.com or notification@jobvite.com) to contact you about a fake OR legitimate job posting. Please closely review the name of the sender and the email domain name associated with their account. All official Splunk recruitment emails will come from accounts formatted as: name@splunk.com, or notification@jobvite.com.
  • Being asked to participate in an interview by chat or email. Splunk does not conduct interviews by chat or email, and will always want to meet either over Zoom, on the phone or in person.
  • Someone urgently insisting that you act immediately within a very short time frame.
  • Someone making you a job offer through social media or an online forum, or making a job offer for a role you have not applied to or interviewed for. 
  • Before Splunk extends an offer, all candidates will first meet with the recruiter and interview team (either over Zoom, on the phone or in person) consistent with our application and hiring process described above.

Splunk will never ask you to make financial transactions on its behalf or for any Splunkers. Splunk will never ask you to receive and ship packages or goods during the recruitment process.

If you experience anything like this in connection with an alleged opportunity at Splunk, please let us know at gscc@splunk.com.

Some positions will require a pre-employment assessment through one of our testing assessment partners. Your recruiter will provide more information if a position you are being considered for has technical assessment requirements.
